Empowering crews to comply with environmental regulations
EnviroManager is a location-based system designed to assist with MARPOL regulation compliance.
Using a GPS feed and a regularly updated geographic database, including national and international baselines, EnviroManager provides a simple colour coded system to advise crew about discharges permitted and not permitted at any position worldwide including bilge water, sewage, air emissions, garbage, food waste and ballast.
A range of symbols helps the vessel plan the handling of waste in an efficient way and minimises the risk of a faulty discharge. This powerful application includes Zone Entry Time information for Special Areas, Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas and Emission Control Areas.
One user explains how easy it makes compliance:
"A recent audit by Shell onboard one of our vessels made a positive acknowledgement that we have invested well in software packages such as ChartCo's Docmap for controlling our SMS and communication between shoreside HSE management and the vessel, and their EnviroManager tool which the auditor noted as '… an innovative system that uses the vessel's GPS position to indicate what controls the vessel should have in force for the control of waste according to MARPOL.' We are very happy with the outcome."
